How can I set password for a program and file so that everytime i click on the file I tells me to enter password to use it?  One more question :  How can I prevent visitors from deleting files from my computer, like when a visitor click on a program  it it says " you don't have access permission" or whatever?  Do I need any software to do that.  I'm using Window 95,

You can restrict people from using any of your logged password programs by using FolderGuard4.5+ version, Norton Lock, or McAfee Lock-It. I have all three in my pc and they all are compatible with win95/win98. I personally use FolderGuard because it shields off any Folders and/or program that i password-protected. It even hides the program if you chose to hide it. You can only see it when you run the FolderGuard and enter the password.

Try using folder guard, it's a great program. You can password protect files, or you can even hide files.
